Once again my taste in tonal value and looks has brought me to this. First off, if your only concern hear are set lists and how this intro went ,this is not for you. About the gear and stryving for the best, well the best thing Jerry ever did was to dump the white Travis Bean. Maybe because I saw so many awful shows w/ this I have this aversion to this axe.Any thing but that guitar. Secondly I hated when Keith went from a real baby grand to that electro Yamaha.ON some songs it sounded down rite harpsichody not quite right for most of the tunes.If they can schelp that WOS MONSTROSITY they could use the grand.As for favs go JERRY'S#1WOLF #2TIGER #3GIBSON SG
PHIL#1Alembic w/ the 20 knobs #2Alembicw/ star pattern
As for pa sound I alwasys thought they should have talked w/ the Pink Floyd audio guys who were doing true QUAD as in having speakers placed w/ towers on stage then 2 more
in the rear of the venue. This effect has not been duplicated as far as I know.

nice to be back ,can't wait.....LW

Well, leftwinger, it's all a matter of taste, and for me it's about the music he created on each guitar, not the gear itself. (We can agree to disagree.) I think you were lucky to see a lot of shows on the Travis Bean, he played some mighty stuff with it. Personal favs would be Alligator and Wolf, just not as big a fan of what came later on Tiger. That said, Jerry could make any guitar sound great - he could squeeze great notes on anything he touched.

Yes, the GD were into their gear, but I think it was all about the musical experience they could make with it... you'll find less discussion of gear here, and more about the music.
